The Better Business Burro hears that homeless squatters may have occupied the former Denny's restaurant at the Linda Mar shopping center. We await independent confirmation of this. If it's true, good luck to them dodging the Kimco rental collection agency.
Pacifican Joan Bonzo takes her oath of allegiance as a new U.S. citizen at a ceremony held at the San Bruno Public Library on May 29. Bonzo, a nursing student, immigrated from the Philippines, and is the first in her family to achieve U.S. citizenship. Like many Pacificans, she loves surfing and long-distance running.
The ceremony, conducted by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (San Francisco District) Director John Kramar, featuring Congresswoman Jackie Speier, was a kind of celebration. Back in 2009, in response to requests by community groups, USCIS undertook to prepare more than 2 million immigration files to be provided to the public for research purposes.
Previously, these files, each one commemorating the immigration history of one person, would have been destroyed after being maintained for 75 years. But they represent the rich history of immigration to Northern California, Hawaii, and Guam. As such, they’ll be maintained at the National Records Center in San Bruno. They’ll be made available for research purposes at the National Archives and Records Administration reading room, also in San Bruno, when they’re 100 years old.
